20 Part 2: Create Your Own Tutorials

21 How much time will it take?

22 What software and hardware do I need?

23 Freeware: AutoScreenRecorder Camtasia Trial (30 days) MS Sound Recorder - MS Paint Windows Moviemaker (XP/Vista version) Software

24 Payware: AutoScreenRecorder Pro ($49.95) Camtasia Academic ($100 – 200) Software

25 Microphone: Integral, USB, or sound card plug-in Hardware

26 Steps Plan Create Edit Produce

27 Plan Start with the big picture – you are the writer, the producer, the director, and the star.

28 Plan Use your classroom experience – you know what works.

29 Plan Include sample tasks and answers for students can review – they should be same difficulty level as real tasks. Sample task Sample answer

30 Plan Decide when to use live motion video, images, or slide sequences. Live motion video

31 Plan Decide when to use live motion video, images, or slide sequences. Images

32 Plan

33 Decide when to use live motion video, images, or slide sequences. Slide Sequences

34 First, reserve the meeting room. Then order the marketing materials and brief the managers. After the briefings, send out customer s and burn sample DVDs. When the s are sent and the DVDs are ready, load the new software. When the marketing materials have arrived and the software is ready, do a dress rehearsal.

39 Create Set a goal for overall duration Consider student attention spans 8 – 10 minutes seems to work well Break topics into smaller units

40 Create Use PowerPoint as your development tool Create narration notes as you go along Easy to work with images, links, tables, shapes, etc. Easy exchange with your other software

41 Create Do the images and video first and import them into your capture program - then record the narration.

42 Create Use and enhance textbook images if possible – add arrows, callouts, etc. Examples

55 The Goldilocks rule: Not TOO fast – consider the typical reader. Not TOO slow – its no fun to stare at a screen during a long explanation. Just right – easy to read and understand. Edit

56 To crop or not to crop – digital surgery can be difficult. Edit

57 Save your work early, often, and in several versions as you go along. Backup, backup, backup! Edit

58 Produce Consider how the tutorial will be used – CD, DVD, or online – and adjust settings accordingly.

59 Camtasia offers a Production Wizard to simplify the process. Produce

60 Do you use BlackBoard or a similar platform? Can you import or link the tutorials? Produce
